The 1.0.2 patch will go live next week, and includes several changes to the Cryptarch and Engram experience. These changes guarantee that Engrams will always decode into items at or above the quality of an engram.
Only Engrams that drop after 1.0.2 are subject to this change.
Cryptarch Changes
Cayde-6 took the Cryptarch aside and showed him a sack of doorknobs. He decoded that mystery pretty quickly.
  • Legendary Engrams will always produce Legendary or better quality items, including Materials or Exotics
  • Rare Engrams will always produce Rare or better quality items
  • Rare engrams will have an increased chance to produce Legendary quality items
Activity Changes
  • Daily Heroics, Weekly Heroics, and Vanguard: Tiger Playlist activities will include Rare and Legendary Engrams in addition to their existing rewards
Item Changes
  • Ascendant materials have been promoted to Legendary to closer associate them with the gear they are used to upgrade
  • Legendary Engram items that exist in your inventory will be demoted to Rare quality when the patch goes live, so decode them while you can. But let’s be honest--even if you don’t, we all know they were blues already...

Sweet baby jesus this is great! Do wish they would've increased the odds of getting the same color instead of taking away getting something lower.

Very cool that they are doing that. My favorite part of this is,

"Legendary Engram items that exist in your inventory will be demoted to Rare quality when the patch goes live, so decode them while you can. But let’s be honest--even if you don’t, we all know they were blues already..."
Thanks for sharing.

Huh, I look forward to this update. Now I won't have to worry about getting uncommon gear out of a rare or legendary engram.

Even though getting things from Engrams are luck? No skilled involved there if that's what you're implying by calling them scrubs.

Yeah, all the scrubs b**** and b**** till they change **** for the worse, then said scrubs leave the game after a month anyway. I was fine with the loot the way it was, because when you actually got a piece of legendary you were so ****ing excited, now im going to see alot more kids that are 29 that dont even know what the raid/nighfall is. I already see people like that and its stupid. Its just going to make it easier. Pretty soon if they keep going down this path of making the game easier they are going to lose their true fans.

I feel like the next update they are going to take guns out of cruicable and replace them with dildos you smack each other with.
